Event description

Description



Chicago Hip Hop Theater Fest is a five-day outdoor Hip Hop Theater festival ( June 14th-June 18th) fusing critical discourse with public space. Various Hip Hop Theater Artists will take the stage to present their original theatrical works. Artists will speak to the idea of urgency engaging a critical lens; be they comedic or bittersweet.



Failing With An “A” is a glimpse of the difficulties of attending a predominately white institution as a person of color from the inner city. It explores topics such as survivor’s guilt, questioning of religion and faith, and the goodness and evils of what is considered home. In this piece of work, Myriha Burton and Shameaca Moore use poetry, music, motion to tell the truths of so many students of color and different ways to navigate micro aggressions. While their white counterparts move through undergrad boasting their A’s on their transcripts, they are miserably failing at this thing called life. (this is a 30 minute show)
